During this extraordinary time of the COVID-19 crisis, CCMC is actively putting together resource information to help those who are under-served in our community. As long as this pandemic remains, we will do all we can to disseminate resource information and advocate for those who are marginalized and vulnerable. As we come together to help one another, we create a stronger community. We encourage you to drop off food, baby supplies, and paper products to local food banks and nonprofits. Check on your family and friends, especially those who are elderly or at high risk. Now, more than ever, we need you to support us while we support others.
Not A Hand Out... But A Hand Up
We take the responsibility of managing our resources with the highest ethical standards and best practices possible. We recognize that our donors and community supporters have entrusted us to use our funds with wisdom and prudence in order to ensure long-term sustainability of our programs and services. We are a 501-c-3 nonprofit organization governed by an independent board of directors. All donations are tax-deductible, as allowed under the law.
Unique Ways to Support Us!
CCMC Focuses on 3 Areas of Human Need
Our Bridges Out of Poverty initiative aims to reduce generational poverty in our community, through training workshops and Getting Ahead classes that help people transition from poverty to stability.
Charitable Healthcare Services
Our charitable medical, dental, vision, and pharmacy clinics provide important healthcare services to those in our community who are uninsured or under-insured.
We meet regularly with people facing de-stabilizing circumstances who need advocacy and assistance. We help them access vital resources and services they need to move forward and re-group.

Bridges Out of Poverty
is the framework that informs our work to reduce generational poverty in the community. We work collaboratively with other organizations, agencies, and individuals to train, raise awareness, create workable strategies, and affect change that enables a more sustainable future for both individuals and our community. We coordinate Getting Ahead Classes with various organizations to offer, throughout the year, 14-week semesters of free classes to those in poverty who are ready to learn how to build resources and plan for a more stable future. For more information about training and Getting Ahead programs, call 501-318-1153 x303 or click here to email.
